1947 Postcard to James F. Burke Jr.
On April 26, 1844, the Town of Burke was the last town separated from the Town of Chateaugay.
The area was originally known as West Chateaugay but later named after the famous Irish-born English
statesman, Edmund Burke.  Most of the first settlers came from Vermont, the earliest of which was
Jehial Barnum, Jr., uncle of Pineas T. Barnum, the remarkable showman.
